The My Child Matters program was launched by the Foundation in 2006 to help children with cancer in low- and middle-income benefit from benefiting from better diagnosis and treatment. The aim is to boost the capacity of local teams, in partnership with the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the SIOP (International Pediatric Oncology Society), the UICC (Union for International Cancer Control), the GFAOP (Association of Franco-African Pediatric Oncology), the CCI (Children Cancer Institute) and the AMCC (Global Alliance Against Cancer) among others.



There are 15 projects underway in 25 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

When a child fights cancer and becomes a pediatric oncologist

This is what happened to Sebastian. In 2009, then aged 18, he lived with his family in Asunción, capital of Paraguay, and was about to start his first year of medical studies when he learned that he was suffering from cancer. In his country, medical services for cancer was extremely rare. Through the My Child Matters initiative that Sanofi has developed in collaboration with local organizations to give children the same access to care, Sebastian was able to receive appropriate treatment. It was during his illness that Sebastian decided to become, in turn, pediatric oncologist. Today, he has completed his medical studies, and is starting on seven years of specialized training to make this dream become a reality.
